Date:

David West will come off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Thunder.

The Spurs will go their normal starting lineup of Tony Parker, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Tim Duncan. The Spurs are expected to rest several starters on Wednesday vs. Dallas, so West could have another start coming his way.
Apr 12 - 8:07 PM

David West started in place of Tim Duncan (rest) on Sunday, posting four points, 10 rebounds, three assists and two steals in 29 minutes during a loss to the visiting Warriors.

West grabbed four of the Spurs' 18 offensive rebounds, which helped prop up an otherwise disjointed offensive effort, but it wasn't enough to beat the defending champs. West is a viable DNP punt play if Duncan misses another game on Tuesday or Wednesday, so keep an eye out for Spurs' lineup updates.
Apr 10 - 9:39 PM

David West will start Sunday's game in place of Tim Duncan (rest).

West has had a few nice games as a fill-in starter this season, but he draws a tough matchup vs. the versatile Warriors. Boris Diaw's absence with a groin injury leaves the Spurs' frontcourt even thinner, so we're likely to see plenty of small-ball lineups tonight.
Apr 10 - 5:28 PM

David West blocked a season-high five shots on Friday against the Nuggets, adding 17 points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and no turnovers in 32 minutes.

He is expected to move back to the bench on Sunday against the Warriors. This was a nice improvement from his previous starts, averaging 9.2 points, 5.0 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.0 blocks and 0.8 steals in those 17. He will likely get one more start this season.
Apr 9 - 1:56 AM

David West will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Nuggets with LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) unavailable.

As a starter this season, West owns averages of 9.2 points, 5.0 boards, 2.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 block per contest on 58.6 percent shooting. The Spurs are resting all their starters aside from Tim Duncan, so West figures to be a focal point of the offense, and with a favorable matchup against the Nuggets he's someone to consider deploying in DFS.
Apr 8 - 8:31 PM

David West scored six points with three rebounds, four assists, one steal and no turnovers 18 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

He should get a few games with significant minutes, but West won't have much value while the Spurs are not resting players.
Apr 2 - 11:29 PM

David West (rest) will not play against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

It's scheduled rest and that will continue for basically the entire roster. With West out, there might be a few more minutes Boban Marjanovic. It's also worth mentioning another bench player could sit tonight.
Mar 30 - 6:56 PM

David West scored 17 points with six boards, three assists and one block vs. the Thunder on Saturday.

He only played 24 minutes with Tim Duncan (rest) and LaMarcus Aldridge (rest) both out, as coach Gregg Popovich started Boris Diaw and Boban Marjanovic. Duncan will miss Monday's game but Aldridge should be back, so West can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 26 - 11:14 PM

David West scored eight points with five rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 21 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday.

He'll be in a really good spot on Saturday with Tim Duncan (rest), LaMarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard (quad) ruled out. West could be a DFS option and is the favorite to start.
Mar 26 - 1:02 AM

David West is expected to return to the bench for Thursday's game against the Bulls with Tim Duncan (rest) active.

West had a nice game with Duncan on the sidelines Tuesday, but he'll return to a limited role off the bench tonight and won't be worth using in most leagues.
Mar 10 - 6:59 PM

David West started for Tim Duncan (rest) and hit 7-of-9 shots for 18 points, four rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block on Tuesday.

Chances are the big daily winners on Tuesday had West in their lineups. Duncan should be back sooner than later, but if you catch wind that West is starting again anytime soon, think about jumping on his wagon.
Mar 8 - 11:19 PM

David West will return to the starting five for Tuesday's game against Minnesota with Tim Duncan (rest) on the sidelines.

West is averaging 8.7 points, 5.1 boards, 2.4 assists and 1.0 block per game as a starter this season, so he's not a great option in most leagues. Boris Diaw and Boban Marjanovic will have the opportunity for some increased minutes tonight.

David West will come off the bench on Monday vs. the Pacers.

The Spurs will be at full strength tonight, meaning West will only see minutes in the teens off the bench. He belongs on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 7 - 6:38 PM

David West started on Saturday vs. the Kings and fouled out in 27 minutes, scoring 12 points with three boards, three assists and two steals.

Tim Duncan (rest) was given the night off and LaMarcus Aldridge sat out with a migraine. West put up averages of 8.5 points and 5.2 boards in 15 previous starts, so he's not a great add outside of deeper leagues.
